Packers Will Promote Myles White to Active Roster, Says Report

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Packers appear to be ready to bolster their receiving corps from within by adding a second practice squad player to the 53-man roster.

In one afternoon, we are seeing reports about two practice squad players being promoted onto the Green Bay Packers' active roster. First, we learned about tight end Jake Stoneburner's promotion from his own twitter account, and now we finally have word on wide receiver Myles White being the second.

Leslie Spoon of WFRV (CBS 5) in Green Bay just tweeted this report:

As with Stoneburner, we do not have any more information on which player will be released in White's place, so we'll have to speculate in the short term. It seems feasible to that one of the moves would be to place Randall Cobb on the Injured Reserve/Designated for Return list, which would keep him out for a minimum of eight weeks. The other roster spot could then come from the release of a recently-added player like running back Michael Hill or cornerback James Nixon, or by placing offensive lineman Greg Van Roten on injured reserve as well.

With White, Jordy Nelson, and Jarrett Boykin, the Packers have three healthy receivers ready to go for Sunday with James Jones still a possibility to play. They would also likely go into the game with five tight ends thanks to Stoneburner's addition.
